Lupus and Exercise

Fitbit Lupus - The Hibbs Lupus Trust

Lupus is a condition for life and during its course it may affect you differently at different times. Research shows that regular exercise leads to a decrease in symptoms and pain, and an increase in energy! It’s not enough to rely on medication. You also have to exercise.

When lupus is active, you may not feel like doing very much and it’s important to rest when you need to. Too much rest, however, will cause the muscles to weaken and may make you feel more tired. You need to find the right balance between rest and exercise. Walking and swimming are good exercises because they can improve fatigue, fitness and stamina without putting too much strain on the joints. Even when you’re having a flare-up, a small amount of exercise is helpful. You should have some gentle exercises that you can do even on a bad day.

Mobile tracking devices such as Fitbit, are an excellent way to monitor and track your activity/exercise/food/weight/sleep to help manage lupus.

With this in mind, we are looking for several people* to try out a Fitbit Charge HR and report back on their experiences. * UK Residents only.

If you are interested, please complete this form.

    A Gift Aid declaration allows The Hibbs Lupus Trust to claim tax back on eligible donations.

    It means that for every £1 you donate to The Hibbs Lupus Trust we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like The Hibbs Lupus Trust to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that The Hibbs Lupus Trust will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.
